Sorry but I have to ask, are this ships designed for space only or can they also enter in a planet´s atmosphere? What tipe of motor does it have? Do they have to be built in the space or can they be built in the planet and later propulsed into space? Are they for war only or can they be used for other porpuses? Do they have artificial gravity? Which are their dimentions?
By the way I love the classic but futuristic concept design.

Some ships such as the battle ship is atmospheric capable.  The battle ship is a little more unique and can also land on water to be a sea vessel and submerge underwater like a sub.

There are many different ships for many different purposes, I will get round to posting these soon hopefully.  CDF is military although they have plenty of logistics craft for transports and civilian tasks.  The CSD (colonial Science Division) is the main scientific research and development Branch.  All capital ships including the Battleship are built in space in CDF Shipyards.  Some smaller ships such as transports and some fighters are produced planetside.

All CDF craft are powered by an Anti-Grav Engine which works with or against local gravity to move a ship through space or through a planets atmosphere.  This engine allows the vessel to be weightless in an atmosphere making it very easy to maneuver with little effort from various thrusters.  In space the engine utilizes a local stars gravity for local travel and uses a wormhole for long distance travel between stars.  Using this method the ship literally flies outside our known dimension into a 4th dimension which has no time.  Once the ship reaches its target and emerges through end of the wormhole, the ship returns to our normal dimension and time takes its toll once more.  

All this needs a hugely advanced power source and you will laugh when I tell you a glass of water will produce enough power for a return trip from Sol to Tau Ceti and power all the ships functions.  

What is in a glass of water?  


What is H20? hydrogen & oxygen. 

What powers the sun?  Hydrogen.  Separating the hydrogen particles and fusing these together creates a huge amount of power as well as the oxygen particles which are also for the thruster system as pure o2 is used to to enhance the thruster ignition.

YAY long live the H2O and nuclear fusión! I prefer anti matter but it´s too dangerous.
By the way, being weighless is not the same as being massless, so now I wonder about it´s agility. Is the gigant battle ship for heavy atacks against defensless targets or can it avoid and/or ressist being under fire and what kind of fire?
I guess it uses MAC cannons and other energy based weapons.

Brilliant Ship designs here. Size really shows for the battleships. Would like to see names for each one, so it doesn't look too copy-pasted.
But again, fantastic space scene.
